Yolo & Delsey’s 10 Favorite Places in France

DELSEY PARIS has partnered with the premium travel magazine YOLO JOURNAL to bring you monthly travel inspirations to the most beautiful places in the world. Yolanda Edwards, founder of Yolo Journal, will share with you her favorite places and secret addresses.


My favorite neighborhood is Rue Notre Dame in the Chartrons which is filled with antiques shops, sweet little bars and the best bakeries–it’s the quintessentially perfect main street and square, without anything overtly commercial. I also love Allée de Tourny, where I suggest to start at the opera house, walk past the historic double-decker carousel and L’Intendant, an excellent wine shop. A few doors down, a wildly opinionated old lady runs a perfumery with a little hand-painted sign. Just down from that is Les Noailles, a brasserie that we love for its classic oysters and sole meunière. And just beyond that is my favorite little flower shop, Sadia Fleur, which always has buckets of hydrangeas, irises, or whatever is in bloom spilling out onto the street. Next door is the most perfect chocolate shop, Cadiot-Badie. It’s just one jewel after another, beautifully preserved.
